IVdsSubSystem::GetDrive method (vds.h)
Returns the specified drive.
HRESULT GetDrive( [in] SHORT sBusNumber, [in] SHORT sSlotNumber, [out] IVdsDrive **ppDrive );
The number of the bus to which the drive is connected.
The number of the slot the drive occupies.
The address of an IVdsDrive interface pointer. Callers must release the interface.
This method can return standard HRESULT values, such as E_INVALIDARG or E_OUTOFMEMORY, and VDS-specific return values. It can also return converted system error codes using the HRESULT_FROM_WIN32 macro. Errors can originate from VDS itself or from the underlying VDS provider that is being used. Possible return values include the following.
||This return value signals a software or communication problem inside a provider that caches information about the array. Use the IVdsHwProvider::Reenumerate method followed by the IVdsHwProvider::Refresh method to restore the cache.|
||The subsystem object is no longer present.|
||The subsystem is in a failed state and is unable to perform the requested operation.|
||Another operation is in progress; this operation cannot proceed until the previous operation or operations are complete.|
Because sSlotNumber and sBusNumber identify a drive exclusively, implementers can assign arbitrary (but consistent) values to each as an internal way of identifying the drives. For more information about bus and slot numbers, see the sInternalBusNumber and sSlotNumber members of the VDS_DRIVE_PROP structure.
